  • President Trump, Why Not Let America Write the Obamacare Replacement

    06/23/2017 11:40:13 AM PDT · by american_ranger · 23 replies
    Why not scrap the healthcare bill from the House and the one from the Senate? Pick a group of people from the medical field, insurance companies, and normal citizens and let them write the new healthcare bill. Make them post everything on a website that allows citizens' comments. After 6 months, put the bill to Congress. We citizens can write a much better bill than a bunch of Congress critters aides
  • Is Islam a hate Group? According to the Definition, Yes it is

    Here is the defintion most organizations that designate hate groups use-- A hate group is a social group that advocates and practices hatred, hostility, or violence towards members of a race, ethnicity, nation, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or any other designated sector of society. Religion--Islam certainly advocates hatred, hostility and violence towards Christians, Jews and other non Muslims. Gender--Islam advocates treating women as far less than men. Sexual orientation--Islam believes that homosexuals should be beaten or killed.
  • Why Democrats PURPOSELY Do Not Have a Message

    Vanity | 6/23/17 | Self
    The message that sells: Jobs, Security, Justice, and Freedom. In other words, Trump's message. If they were to adopt this message, they would have to explain how to accomplish these goals. That's what they DON'T want to expose. Socialism only works for their base, and would alienate moderates. Additionally, if they were to adopt a mainstream message they would have to publicly acknowledge what Trump is doing to address these goals. And it is difficult to argue with success if you are an unwilling participant. The MSM also knows this and will not cover anything Trump actually does. Democrat (moderates)...
  • Question: Real Time Transmission of Video - Space Travel

    Vanity | 6/12/2017 | Vanity
    So, here is the dumb question my brother posed: If a ship leaves earth and transmits "LIVE" video as it travels deep into space, would the transmissions continue to be live and real time even as it traveled months and years away from earth? At what point does that transmission actually delay or become part of the past? Bonus question: Assuming the craft continues travel directly away from earth, if it stopped transmitting and then restarted transmitting would that now be real time? Caveat: I don't know the distance that makes the transmission now a part of the past...

  • VANITY -- Solution to the sketchy pro-Clinton Mueller problem (create a 2nd council)

    06/22/2017 7:39:54 AM PDT · by Democrats hate too much · 43 replies
    How about Session creates a Prosecutor to look into Russian Hacking and interference including Trump thing IN PARALLEL to the other slow moving money draining sketchy biased Mueller council. Trump can be like “You know this is taking very long, and I want to make double sure that this is taken care of”. This would be a more pro Trump prosecutor to look into the issue. This would be fair. They can after a short period of time exchange information. Trump can’t get rid of the current prosecutor (or feels enough pressure not to). Well, this may be a solution...

    Over the past two years we have watched the level of violence perpetrated by the Left grow and grow. During Trump's campaign there were scores (or more) of attacks on his rallies. Hundreds of his followers were injured by these terrorist attacks. That is what they were. Now after months of Democratmedia hysteria attempting to remove the legitimate winner of the last race, we have seen our first actual shooting and attempted murder. Anyone with any integrity would have to admit on examining this case, that the shooter must have been radicalized by these incessant smearing of the President. How...

    Trump needs our help. To be effective we must have a game plan. The MAGA-TRAIN Game Plan: 1) Call your DEM/GOP senator and congressman each week, every week until further notice. The call only counts if you speak to someone, otherwise keep at it. 2) No script, just express your opinion. 3) Ask friends/family to commit to do the same and pass it on. Reasoning: 1) Arguing with the brainwashed left changes nothing. 2) Arguing with the RNC is not as effective. 3) If everyone makes these calls each week every week, we can put pressure on the Uniparty. I...

    I just wanted to share something I have noticed in the wake of the Steve Scalise shooting. If you look at many leaders of the Democrat Party, you notice they have something in common. Think about the behavior of Democrat leaders in the present and recent past like Pelosi, Hillary, Alan Grayson, Barney Frank and Al Franken to name a few. The common thing that connects them is that they all appear to be functionally mentally ill. The same thing can be probably be said about Scalise's shooter, James Hodgkinson. The reason I bring this up is for the sake...

  • Salon's Amanda Marcotte already blames the shooting on conservatives (vanity)

    06/14/2017 4:37:20 PM PDT · by Faith Presses On · 33 replies
    I decided to see what Salon might have say about today's shooting, and sure enough, they were quickly out with outrageous lies in order to create an alternative narrative. By 2:55 p.m. Amanda Marcotte had posted the Democratic attack points which wholly blamed the right. In my opinion, it's well worth the time reading. I just would have posted excerpts, but apparently Salon is now banned here. I'll mention a few of the things she says, but there's even more in the article. It sounds like she got this straight from DNC headquarters. The apparent main point of writing the...
  • Anti-American Express Helped Inspire Today's Shooting

    American Express | 6/14/2017 | Member Since 1987
    American Express today again refused to withdraw its sponsorship of The Public Theater's adaptation of Julius Caesar, which is now playing in New York's Central Park. The play depicts the brutal assassination of President Donald Trump as he is stabbed to death by multiple assassins. Other theater sponsors, including Delta Air Lines and Bank of America, withdrew their sponsorship from the theater earlier this week. Despite today's attempted massacre of two dozen Republican lawmakers by a leftist gunman provoked by violent anti-Trump rhetoric, American Express stands firm in its corporate support of The Public Theater. In a phone conversation with...
  • Shooter of Congressional Republicans rifle already being called "high-powered."

    Fox News | 14 June 2017 | Ralph W. Davis
    Listening to Fox News, the gun the shooter used has been identified as an SKS with 7.62 X 39 ammo, with a scope, and called a "high powered rifle." Of course an SKS is not high powered, or particularly accurate....but the ignorance, fear, and bias of the Media--even on Fox--is already coming out--to pound the drum against the 2nd Amendment.
  • If the ball field shooter had been a Trump supporter shooting at Democrats?

    06/14/2017 10:53:42 AM PDT · by dragnet2 · 47 replies
    The media would have exploded, immediately declaring it was Trump's rhetoric, his talk of violence and division that was the driving force behind the shooter and others like him. The big media attacks on Trump would go on for weeks if not the duration of Trump's presidency.

    1. Who knew he was going to do this? Is the guy married? If so, where did his wife think he was today? Friends? 2. Did anyone help him? 3. How did he get here? Did he check his rifle on a plane? Did he drive here with the rifle in a car? Did he buy a rifle when he got here? A long car trip would have given him plenty of time to think about his plans. When did he arrive in DC/VA? Has he been here a long time planning this? Did he step off the plane or...

    Ryan said, "An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us." The shooter asked if the softball players were Republican or Democrat. The shooter than fired multiple shots. People there said that the shooter was shooting at multiple people, not "one" person. Ryan could have said that "An assassination attempt on multiple Republicans is an attack on all of us". But he didn't.
